If you love fine tequila, Toloache (pronounced toe-lo-AH-chay) has by far the best selection in the Theatre District. Roughly 100 bottles of the distilled beverage glitter at the tiled bar, an excellent place to sip it straight or in a tart margarita along with some chips and thick guacamole. The bi-level bistro is splashed with vibrant Mexican art and lit by lovely multicolored hanging lamps. Julian Medina, of Mexico City, is the chef/owner, preparing elevated yet approachable dishes like suckling pig tacos, avocado fries, lobster ceviche and quesadillas with sea scallops and bacon–Mexican chocolate pico de gallo. The kitchen serves until 10pm Sunday and Monday, 11pm Tuesday through Thursday and until midnight on weekends, but you can linger over drinks for as long as you like.
